No. DBA filings are only required if you are operating a sole proprietorship
or partnership under a name other than your personal legal name or last name. For example,
if your name is John Smith and you are operating a plumbing business as
"Superior Plumbing Services," or a partnership as "Smith & Associates
Plumbing," you would need to file a DBA to conduct business. If
you are a sole proprietorship, you would not need to file a DBA to legally be called
"Smith's Plumbing" that business name consists of your surname in combination
with words that accurately describe the business.
